High-end Adventure Watch: 3 Reasons You Need One


If you’re in the market for a new watch, there are seemingly endless choices. There is a specific category of the most durable and stylish watches, though, that brings something special to the table. It’s called the adventure watch. At Windsor Jewelers, we carry the finest adventure watches money can buy: Panerai, Rolex, IWC, TAG Heuer, Luminox, Seiko Prospex, U-Boat and many more. Here are three reasons why you need a high-end adventure watch.

1. You Lead an Active Lifestyle

adventure-1 The outdoors is your sanctuary and playtime is more important than time in the office. Whether it’s scuba diving, cycling, rock climbing or racing on land, sea or in the air, going outside and doing is far more exciting than sitting on the sidelines and watching. Sweat, dirt, and few bumps and scrapes along the way don’t deter you one bit.

The Master Compressor by Jaeger-LaCoultre is tough enough to keep up with you. Its ceramic case is both lightweight and extremely strong. A compression key at the crown guarantees the maximum level of water resistance and the high tech material strap will take the most grueling punishment. It’s one of the most rugged outdoor watches on the market.
